Biggest-Ever 888poker Festival in London Hits in October

888Live Festival
Ghostbusters-sized Nitsche included!

Since 888poker opened its own branded poker room at the Aspers Casino in East London back in March, the tournament action has been pretty much non-stop.

However, none of them have been quite as big as what’s about to hit town in October.

“Make It Big" is the motto of a new 888poker festival series coming to Aspers Oct. 13-23 that will take the room to the next level over an 11-day, 17-event spectacular.

Biggest Yet in London

17 tournaments, live satellites not included, will play out over the course of the biggest festival 888 has put on yet at Aspers.

Aspers will be full to brimming.

The major events will be:

  • £100,000 guaranteed, £220 buy-in opening event with three starting days
  • £2000 buy-in, 2-day High Roller event
  • £200,000 guaranteed, £880 buy-in, three-day main event

Plenty more events are also on the slate starting at £120 buy-in and featuring Turbo and Deepstack events as well as a £250 Omaha Turbo Mega Deep event.

You can already find online satellites under the live events tab in the 888poker lobby.

Apart from the steps satellites there are direct qualifiers for the opening and the main event. Check the full schedule below.

Third 888poker Live Series

Over the last couple of years 888poker has established itself as one of the leading hosts of live poker events.

There is already the 888Live Local Series with multiple stops all over Europe and even the Americas. Most of these stops feature a two-day NLHE event with €/£/$220 buy-in.

Then there is the 888Live! Series, which features a €440, two-day main event plus a $5k bounty freeroll and – as a special feature – one additional day of sports or cultural activities.

Former events have led the participants to exciting places like Tallinn/Estonia, Marbella/Spain, the Austrian Alps and Cyprus.

With a third live event concept out there 888poker is still pushing the idea of attracting amateur players but has added tournaments with medium buy-ins and even a high roller to expand the range of players events should appeal to.

As a special incentive 888poker’s top European team pros Sofia Lövgren, Dominik Nitsche and Chris Moorman will also play in the big events and they will each carry an $888 bounty.
